for john brennan, president obama's nominee to heat cia, it was held in the intelligence committee in the senate, right? well, specifically it's called the u.s. senate select committee on intelligence. this committee was not created until 1976. it was created specifically in response to the recommendations of the church committee. the church committee was a special senate investigation led by idaho senator frank church. it was formed in 1975. their work took nine months and 150 staffers. they produced a two-foot-thick report in may 1976 that said, among other things, that we need congress to oversee intelligence in this country. the way we are overseeing it now is not working. and you know why we can tell that oversight is not working? because the cia keeps killing people. or trying to kill people in other countries that we are not at war with. the cia at the time had taken it upon itself, it wasn't clear if they were acting alone or at various presidents' direction, but they had taken on the job of assassinations in foreign countries. assassinations and attempted assassinations. a

brennan, will face the senate intelligence committee for his confirmation hearing as the director of central intelligence. one of the very first thing president obama did you might remember when he first became president at the start of his first term in 2009 was that he dropped the bush administration's torture policy. remember, he did that right away. he issued an executive order two davis taking office to doubly, triply extra ban torture in the united states. at the start of that first term, newly elected president obama also wanted to nominate john brennan to be the head of the cia. but he didn't end up putting him forward. john brennan ended up taking his name out of contention for that nomination because of opposition to him being chosen. and the opposition centered on the fact that john brennan had been deputy executive director of the cia during the bush days. during the bad old torturing prisoners days of the george w. bush administration. so you're going to have a brand-new president who bans torture, but then you're going to put a guy who was there for the whole torture
